Waiguru seeks assurance from PAC that probe will be fair and impartial

By Franco Kundu

Former Devolution Cabinet Secretary Anne Waiguru has sought for an assurance from the Parliament Accounts Committee that it will limit itself from finding the truth about the Ksh 791 million meant for the National Youth Service.

Waiguru who is currently appearing before the Nicholas Gumbo led committee accused some MPs for allegedly driving the agenda of justifying a predetermined position terming it unconstitutional.

She said Kenyans have been treated to an imaginable drama concerning NYS. Members of the committee however cited Waiguru’s concerns as intimidation that amounts to gagging them on the matter under scrutiny.

MPs John Mbadi [Suba], Abdikadir Mohammed [Mbalambala] and Timothy Bosire [Kitutu Masaba] said they are only exercising their oversight role to establish the truth about the NYS saga without political interests.

While assuring the former CS of her protection in line with the constitution Gumbo said the committee will not entertain any form of drama amid concerns among Kenyans that Ksh 971 was misappropriated.

Meanwhile Waiguru has turned her arsenal against business man Beth Gethi who has been quoted previously alleging that it is the former CS who fixed him in the NYS drama.

Waiguru now wants Gethi to be prevailed upon to provide names of his companies based on the fact that he has allegedly been depositing over 40 million shillings in banks on a regular basis.

On Wednesday while appearing before the PAC committee former Principal Secretary in ministry of Devolution Peter Mangiti accused Waiguru of instituting reforms that promoted corruption and loss of millions of shillings.
